Anybody's DH a Masonry Contractor? Need advice about brick.......

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive October 2006: Anybody's DH a Masonry Contractor? Need advice about brick.......

DS Mike's Eagle Scout Project is replacing these old rickety wooden walkways at the local Baptist church with brick pavers. It has been a lot of work, even with all of us pitching in to help him. However, it has come out pretty nice, especially considering we didn't know what we were doing when we started. :) The guys at the local lumber yard have been a wonderful help in giving us good advice.

Now we are down to the end of the walkways and we have to cut some brick to make it fit. Because the walkways are at an angle, it left us with triangular spaces that need to have bricks cut to fit. The lumberyard that donated the pavers is loaning us a brick cutter on Wednesday. However, I can't imagine how that works because these aren't just clay bricks that can be scored and broken. These are heavy pavers 4" X 8".

My question is....how hard is it to cut these things? The project has gone so well. I hate to mess up now. TIA
